Rear seats are comforatable and please
both the kids and parents. Access to
rear seats with clamshell doors not a
problem. Rear seating area has more
functional room/features than did the
2001 Xterra that we previously owned.
Z71 towing package provides enough
axle and shock overhead so as to
handle moderate tongue weights with no
perceptible impact on suspension.
5.3 Liter V8 has plenty of power to
pull moderate size trailers at highway
speeds. Tow/Haul mode not even needed
for trailer loads under 1,500 lbs.
A/C rarely needs to go beyond 3 even
in the South Texas heat.
With over half of the 5,000 miles from
highway driving, am starting to feel
what seems like loose tie rods and
jittery steering wheel movement when
going over normal road bumps at speeds
under 40mph. Door hinges make popping
noise. Intermittent cluncks during
low gear range shifts.
